I know that.

He saw a TATA Ace with the message written in Odiya, took a random pic from internet and typed it in English and posted here. That was clear from his first post itself.

Ok... If I understood correctly what he is saying is that he noted a message in Odia on a similar truck. He has merely tried to resurrect that experience for us by creating a translated message on a similar truck image. The joke is in the message.

And now, the joke is lost with all this dissection and analysis!

By the way, on what DrSingh posted, the joke was in the news report. You missed the piece that was the highlight there. Unlike what the news report says Tesla S is not an electric scooter as far as I know.

Actually, there is a joke/error that Dr Singh caught!
The article says, "Tesla Model S 'Scooter' "
Needless to say, the model S is sedan.

EDIT : Sorry just saw Zappo post the same thing. Sorry for the redundancy.
Waiting for the day Tesla enters India, though

I believe our friend here wanted to highlight the "writing" he saw on an Indian TATA ACE which was written in Odia. So, very kindly, he translated it to "Hinglish" and painted it over the Spanish Model TATA ACE EV picture which featured in the topspeed website. Right??

P.N: "CURIOSITY" drastically kills your time before it kills you.

@fuel injector, you missed the bit about the high definition or HID lights which gives a one kilometer radius of lighting

Lovely picture used as a reference in this article. India must have the highest number of Subject matter experts in All fields!

Suhel Seth is an example who is called for any and every debate!

One Sharma character who is an economist actually suits the description in this article mentioned.
